We had our monthly stitching group yesterday. The local LNS also had a Superbowl sale, but I just got my 123 order and I was again sorting through charts, so I decided not to go. Apparently, it was a zoo for those who went, so it's better I didn't go.
I saw this stitching. The plan is to stitch the entire Torah--the first 5 books of the Old Testament, I asked. This sounds like a massive undertaking. Not to mention, how heavy they are going to be, but it's pretty awesome to think about. I'm thinking about requesting a block, but there is a charge involved and not sure about the time commitment.
I spent the last two weeks stitching Lizzie Kate freebies. I have had these for several years, they came from the files of the Lizzie*Kate Yahoo group.
Joy to the World:
Stitched on Heatherfield with DMC flosses.
Bee My Friend
Stitched on a random scrap of yellow evenweave with DMC flosses
Slight customization of the tulip
These were pretty fun to do. Not terribly difficult, except that Heatherfield was killer on my hands. Now that the temps have started to come up a little (disregarding today, cause it's snowing here), they're not as chapped. Is spring here yet?
This is my new little WIP. It's another freebie from Cute Silver Dwarf's blog. I started it Saturday night, with the recommended DMC, on a piece of PTP Fathom I had in the closet. Because it's so much black, I thought it would be easier to outline the big areas, not count as I go. It's pretty fun to stitch
I have no idea what I'll do with any of this. Maybe do a pillow out of the sheep, and a little ornament for the bee one. It will just be what strikes my fancy when I get to that point.
